Welcome to my caring bridge page my name is Amy Elizabeth Rose Hufker, I have a twin sister named Katie, and two brothers, who are also twins, named Timmy and Kurt, who are 4 years 3 months and 25 days younger. My whole life my parents always talked to my doctors about me being extremely obsessed with pigs and kids would bully me saying that they ate "pig products" also me being very shy and not having as many social knowledge as my twin sister in fact I was less knowledgeable of socializing than my brothers at that time, as well as me not having any friends so at recess Katie would want to be with her friends but I wouldn’t have any so I chased her also fire drills were Unbearable; I never told anyone at the time but I noticed that compared to my sister, my classmates, my peers, my brothers, their classmates and their peers for some reason I was more "flexible" I would injure easily, my joints would make a very loud cracking noise and when they did I got a lot of stares my classmates would even ask why do your joints crack so loudly, there were times that I was yelled at by the teacher they thought I purposely made it that loud and at the time I was always afraid to ask the teacher to go to the nurse or the bathroom so I never told anyone but most of the times it happened I would have an odd feeling in my joint that hurt and felt like it would "wiggle" sometimes I would even have to press on the joint to get the "wiggling" and pain to stop and it made an even louder cracking noise which a few times when I did it the teacher would send me to the principal, I never really told anyone but my whole life I had constant joint pain and couldn’t keep up in PE class because of the pain. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when I was 10 years 1 month and 18 days old. In 3rd grade I had a disease called Henoch Schönlein purpura, I couldn’t walk in 4th grade it explained the social skills concerns but not why I go
